Saratoga – Area Information
Located in southern Wyoming, Saratoga Springs was renamed in 1884 from Warm Springs because the town’s outdoor mineral baths shared similarities with the famous hot springs of the New York resort. Today, this pocket-sized burg has become a hub for all things outdoors. Central to the blue-ribbon waters of the North Platte and Encampment Rivers, Saratoga’s slogan is “Where the Trout Leap in Main Street,” but for bikers, hikers, hunters, snowmobilers, cross country skiers, horsemen, floaters, mountain climbers, wildlife and birdwatchers, and scenic sightseers, the town with wooden boardwalks remains simplistically desirable. Few crossroads intersect with this one-road town where hearty pioneer and unruly outlaw legends were forged, but the convenience of respectable restaurants, historic Western saloons, galleries and hot shopping spots still keep Saratoga lively.
